Orienteering race (MetrO Kent St) 1:03:03 [2] 5.59 km (11:17 / km) +1m 11:16 / km
shoes: Merrell Continuum

Oddly overcast and moist day, which was a pleasant change from some very hot outings. Great course by Hadrien and Ellie, spoilt only by the dicks who busted down a tree to pinch #126. Took in rather more suburb than would have been necessary with a better route choice. Amused to find a family perched on the seat at #109, busily waving me in to the control and with 2 little girls holding the brick up for me to punch. Manned control? Great service :-)

Cycling (FROGs ride) 2:47:02 [0] 28.76 km (5:48 / km) +129m 5:41 / km
shoes: Giant Anthem 2 XL 2019

Added myself to the long list of participants who don't pay attention to the instructions. Assumed the "Camfield Rd carpark" was the one near the pub, and as I had time to spare, parked at the usual spot near the outdoor cinema and rode up along the river. Thought it a bit odd that Anna drove past me in the opposite direction but whatever ... Sure enough, nobody at the pub so I rode back in the direction that Anna had taken and found the group at the other end of Camfield Drive.
After that inauspicious start, it was a warm ride to Garvey Park via Maylands, punctuated (clever huh?) by a flat tyre on Mike's trusty Malvern Star. Tube replaced and progress continued. Interesting system at the kiosk at Garvey - orders taken and seating occupied, then one of staff with a 100 acre paddock voice calls out your name when the goodies are ready. Reckon most of Ashfield would have known who was there.
Uneventful ride back via Ascott.
